Hot Courts  


Date:            Every Thursday evening
Time:           Drop-in (play continues from 6:30-9:30 pm)
Location:     Montclair Courts, Oakland (Mountain at Colton)
Cost:            $2 donation requested
Organizers :   Hans Boerner and Kenny Goodman
 
 
 
 
Hot Courts happen every Thursday evening, year-round.  Simply stop by anytime between 6:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. (no partner needed) for some casual and fun doubles tennis.
 
The exact format varies, but generally consists of four no-ad games followed by a tiebreaker, after which those who had a bye on the previous round are brought in, partners and opponents are switched up, and play begins again.
 
The cost is only $2.00 per evening, which goes to help defray the costs of court maintenance and repair (nets, windscreens, etc.).

LAST/THIS YEAR AT WATERGATE

I’m certain that all of you film buffs out there have already discerned
the subtle article title allusion to the 1961 classic French romantic movie,
LAST YEAR AT MARIENBAD, directed by Alain Resnais; Marienbad is
surprisingly not a French locale but is a spa town in the Czech Republic.

Anyway, although while I’m not discounting the possibility that
participating in this year’s edition of the interclub or mixer with the
Watergate folks will culminate in a ecstatic romantic interlude for you, I am
confident based on our previous encounters there and my extraordinary
precognitive abilities that it will, from a tennis playing and conviviality
perspective, be a thoroughly pleasurable experience for you.

As always, I will be deferring to Ron Louie, the Watergate tennis pro,
in organizing the format and match-ups. As this is not a fiercely
competitive event and will involve partnering with both fellow MTA
members and Watergate residents and their guests, it is one that is
suitable for players of all skill levels.

MTA/Watergate will provide edibles and beverages, so all you need
to do is simply register, bring your racket, and when you arrive, display your best game face
